Disabling the annoying system beep!

The system beep is unaffected by windows volume control / sound card settings. If you're working late@ night and dont want to upset the missus, here is how to disable it >

Go to the dos prompt (START > RUN > type 'CMD' {Enter]
Run these 2 commands >
net stop beep [ENTER]
sc config beep start= disabled [ENTER]

Personally, i pasted those two command lines into a batch file and ran it on my machines (physical and virtual).
